Canada Post Labour Dispute 2018

Canada Post Labour Dispute 2018

Canada Post could be on labour Dispute with 72 hours notice.  We're here to help! 

As of Oct 16th, the CUPW Union has filed 72 Hour strike notice with rotating strikes in undetermined areas.  This means currently, as of Oct 22nd, the postal system may be slower than usual, but is still operational.  We're monitoring the situation, and will make further changes if the dispute ends, or if labour disruption occurs.

This means we're currently counting 2-Day shipping as safe, if shipped between Monday-Wednesday.

Shipping within Canada:

We have adjusted our "Best Rate" shipping to include Courier Rates, and Canada Post rates if your area is in a 1 or 2 day delivery zone .  You'll see now our Best Rate will show (Safe From Labour Dispute)  - We'll continue to let you choose Canada Post services with a marker stating that there is a possible dispute.  Please keep in mind that on West Wind Gifts orders as it can take a few days to receive your item, that choosing a 1-2 day Canada Post shipment could be delayed due to labour disruption.  Its best to pick the "Safe From Labour Dispute" option, or choose courier.

We have many options for shipping.  In some locations across Canada, shipping rates have gone up to accommodate courier shipping.  In many parts of Canada, Courier shipping is cheaper than Canada Post, and you wont notice any change at all.

Shipping in the USA / International:

Are you in the USA or International?  No problem! 

Dragon Moon Gifts:

We'll be shipping all orders out with DHL Global Mail - doing a consolidation every week or so (as needed) to our Ontario office - This is a trackable service with insurance and still uses the mail system to get your order to you. This may add a few days onto service, but nothing too major.  Some orders to the USA may ship by UPS instead.

West Wind Gifts:

You're already enjoying fast service with DHL Global Mail, as orders ship out of Ontario already.  Everything is as per usual with no delays.
